The Sea Stallion Pool has welcomed two new pool members belonging to the M/Maritime located in Athens, Greece. Being the 21st unit of the Sea Stallion Pool, the modern 34,806 tdw handy-size bulk carrier MV “DIONI.GR” joined the pool fleet right after her delivery as a newbuilding built by Hakodate Dock Co. Ltd., Japan, on 24 July 2018. Her maiden voyage took her via Portland, Oregon back to south Asia with a cargo of soda ash for American Soda Ash Corp. The 22nd pool vessel called MV “CALYPSO.GR” is a modern handy-size bulk carrier of 37,856 tdw (a sister vessel of MV “LEFKADA”) which was delivered by Imabari Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. on 20 September 2017. She entered the Sea Stallion Pool on 29 September 2018 and her first voyage is taking her from Mesaieed, Qatar, to Durban, South Africa with a cargo of fertilizers right now.
M/Maritime Corp., established in 2016, is a global shipping company whose principal activity is the management of dry bulk carriers – currently seven units, three in the handy-size and four in the ultramax segment. Further six bulk carrier newbuildings are expected to be delivered by 2020.
We are very pleased that MV “DIONI.GR” and MV “CALYPSO.GR” have been entrusted to the pool by our new partner M/Maritime. Both vessels are a great complement to the fleet due to their technical specification and high quality.
